    World War Z should have had at least 100 levels of gameplay for 30gb of storage what a waste of space.

    Watched this before buying the game. Loved your review, and I do not regret buying. Would recommend it to anyone who is having second thoughts, as it can be a fun game.

      @Kenneth Corcoran Jr I haven't tried the offline mode yet, but I've had a few games with bots and they are not that bad. So I guess it would be enjoyable.

    The absurd amount of ammo is hilarious and in many ways, what is wrong with games like this.

      @Chase Rhodes I also love how the blast radius of the granades are contained to around 6ft and don't trouble surrounding structures whatsoever.

      Of it were more realistic the people would be in One building for hours with hundreds of boxes of ammo and several magazines, switching whoโ€™s shooting while the others load the magazines. I think I just came up with an interesting/ repetitive game idea lol

    After watching some reviews and gameplay videos, I've noticed something.
    This game may not be for those who are prone to motion sickness.
    I'm usually fine with 3rd-person shooters in general. I've also played a lot of L4D, Killing Floor 2, Shadow Warrior, Destiny 2, etc. for hours on end and never had any trouble. But just watching the reviews of WWZ makes me really nauseous and I'm having a bad headache now. It's worse when reviewers use KB+M.
    So, if there are settings to help players like me in a shooter game like this, it would be nice to mention that a bit.

    Actually Moscow does look quite like in the game if the snow isn't removed by hand and vehicles. Even my city used to look like that each winter ~10 years ago. Plus, there are no people running around and generating heat, so snow can accumulate and it won't turn into water since overall there's way less heat and CO2 pollution (no cars) plus zombies I assume aren't the same body temperature as humans are (and we all dissipate our heat to closest environment).

    I am in need of a new game but dunno what to pick up just now. There is Metro, Days Gone, this game could be good, and i know many people didn't think much of RAGE 1 but i personally loved it so RAGE2 could be an option. I am a LEGO guilty pleasure but just finished a bunch recently being the Marvel Super Heroes 2, Avengers and just got the game for the first LEGO movie but that is pretty short but not finished yet. I almost got LEGO DC Super Villains but i think it is just a mask of the Marvel Super Heroes style of LEGO game obviously with a different story but just the same kind of puzzles etc.

    -The zombies look badass when they're flooding into the map.
    -gun attachments that you have to earn.
    -Several characters with little background stories.
    -Boring mission objectives.
    -Zombies are not scary.
    -Only 11 co-op missions that take about 3 hours to complete them all.
    -to summarize combat basically zombies will start flooding into the map... usually there will be a fence that slows them down and you just throw C-4 at the pile of zombies and then mindlessly shoot into the crowd. Rinse and repeat.

    Before you buy, get redy for LOT of bullshit, godlike player who insta team kill when you dont give YOUR medkit (he has like 4th time low health...) or ยจstealยจ his quipment (there are like over 9000 those packs in one map...) and lot of rushing, then he die, then he blame us.... right. And if you think you can handle insane dificulty, learn to USE silencer. But its our fault, logic?.... Do you know what happens when you pull trigger when you DONT have silencer??? Dont ever play insane if you dont use silencer, plz..... AND learn to fucking listen when sneaky peaky is close, sometimes its spawn right next to you when you just rush. In insane, lurker senaky peaky is behind every corner if you dont know whats coming. You have no idea how many breacher charges, heavy weapons and medkits you miss if you dont know that its 4 guys team. When you are alone sneaky peaky spawn right next to you, every time. ts super good game, but gamers allredy ruined it cous they suck, and its my fault, then they teamkill, logic? its like every 3 game is 2min cous something like this happens. Learn to kick, or just kill and revive so he become zeke, and just kill, those assholse who are playing like a fucking god xD
    Good Luck!!!!

    I am not a huge co-op fan maybe besides some games like left for dead,destiny,or dead island but I do like the co-op for this game which most of the time I can trust the A.I. more sadly than I can with some human player who decides to run off half of the time or takes the all the good weapons or want revive you when needing help.

    This developer sucks. Two massively huge patches later 3-4gb each! Fixed NOTHING. I can't even invite, see, or play with my friends on PC in a coop game is down right game breaking. Let alone all the issues with lost progression and developers response is a work around for you to backup your own save file, instead of them releasing a patch that actually fixes things. Yes all your data is stored locally and you can probably just change all the values and be God, let alone no anti-cheat system. Game rides on a gimmick of "so many zombies!" it wears off shortly... You spend your time leveling to 150, then next time you load in and progress gone... Then do that with complete randoms, since you can't invite people.

Am I just that old that it's been so long people have forgotten l4d?

    (xbox) Beyond disappointed. A friend I have played borderlands, division, left 4 dead. This was a complete waste of money. Even on easy level, it's A.D.D. .. too many zombies. You have hardly any time to do anything. You can't jump. When a zombie gets on top of you, you can't get up.. someone has to save you. It takes 10 seconds to apply health (just let us pick up health!!).. the player control seems slow/delayed. The zombies puking and messing up your display is another major annoying thing. So many things wrong with this game.

    I do want to bring the attention to the ps4 side of this game. Yesterday on the 26th of April I bought it 10 days after release. When I booted up the game it immediately had connection issues that would not let you play online. This issue also would not let you play past the first 1 chapter and would rinder any further gameplay literally unplayable. The dev's are aware of the issue and seem to have been sense the 16th of April saying they are going to fix the issue. But a huge red flag went up after see it was a issue 10 days after the fact. Luckily I just got the game and Sony refunded me right away even though I did not fall in line with their refund policy. I also live on the east coast west nc so it may just be a issue with servers in my area.
